I remember a few years ago reading a report that the citizens of Coventry had collected money for a bell for this church - but I see no mention of that in the report.

The two cities are twinned - mainly due to fairly obvious historical similarities - and there is considerable contact between them.

Bell or no bell, a beautiful church.

Actually, my mistake. What the people of Coventry donated was a golden cross and orb, according to this:

i was is Dresden a few years back and to see a massive baroque church being built is strange to say the least.. As for the building its hard to get and idea of the size until you are right beside it a really stunning building. The next big rebuilding project in germany the royal palace in Berlin may prove to be a more difficult project.

A bridge too far for Dresden's world heritage status title

The Frauenkirche Cathedral and historical city centre are visible behind the building site of the controversial bridge over the river Elbe in Dresden yesterday.

DEREK SCALLY in Berlin

NEWS THAT Unesco has removed Dresden’]

I couldn't find a more appropriate thread to put this in, but I thought it might be of interest.
(Oh, by the way, is it possible to correct the typo in the thread title?)
